Measurements - Breeches and Trousers:

Photos: Please enclose/attach 3 pictures of yourself in the following views – Front view, side view, ¾ view (twist at your waist to face the side, and please do NOT be wearing baggy clothing. Never feel modest with your tailor!)

Measurements (there are measurement instructions included for some of the measurements below. Please read through this entire document, and all of the instructions before you begin writing down measurements)

It is VERY important to take accurate measurements. If you are unsure of anything please contact us for clarification or to set up a walk through via telephone. We will happily do this. If your measurements are incorrect, the resulting garment will not fit correctly.

Note: for some of the measurements you will need another person to be a "measurement helper" to complete them. Once completed please email the measurements back to us at customvestments@hotmail.com

Natural Waistline
 

Put your hands on your hips and bend side to side.  Where your body naturally bends is your natural waist.  This may be higher than you wear your modern pants and this IS normal. Tie a string around your natural waistline. (in the picture above, you can see the tilted string. This is showing the difference between the natural waist (the higher point) and the pants waist) Many of the measurements you will take are taken from a point on your natural waist and this will help ensure consistency.

 

________ inches

Rise
  Measure from the center of your natural waist in front to the center of your natural waist in back, passing the tape measure between your legs. Don’t pull too tightly or your trousers will fit too snugly. Allow it to fall comfortably.
